The Discussion Thread Index II
When I first started spending time around the forum, I came across The Discussion Thread Index, an index of all discussion threads on the OOTS comics. I thought it was an excellent idea, and I enjoyed reading through old discussion topics to see what people had to say. Sadly, the original topic has gone unupdated for over a year.
I decided to revive the idea with my own topic! Enjoy, and please point out any mistakes you find. All credit goes to atteSmythe for coming up with this excellent idea.
If the text is red, that means the discussion thread has been deleted.

Re: The Discussion Thread Index II
also, thread 263 link is down.
I've rather enjoyed trawling through them though didn't start posting regularly until after War & XPs, so seeing views on older strips is interesting.

Re: The Discussion Thread Index II
This thread should be made Sticky.
"It's better when you have several prisoners. You put them in one place and ask each one for the location of enemy camp. Then you slit their throats at a slightest sign of refusal, one by one, until there is only one left. This is usually the end, because the poor fellow breaks by then. If he doesn't well... all the better for you."

Re: The Discussion Thread Index II
Seconded. If the lost discussion threads could be fixed too, that would be nice.
But stickying this would be ideal.

Re: The Discussion Thread Index II
Thanks for pointing that out. The thread seems to have been deleted, so I've noted that in the first post.
Also, thanks for the comments about stickying, guys. I'm glad you think this topic is worth it . But there's lots of other important topics that haven't been stickied, so it wouldn't really be fair if this one was.
Also: Updated with #643.Credits to halfhalfling for my adorable avatar.

Re: The Discussion Thread Index II
Regarding lost discussion threads...
Would it be possible to find them through the Internet Archive? If so, maybe it would be feasible to put a link to *that* repository.
Just an idea...!JoseB

Updated for #646 and #647.
Also, I tried to find the old Discussion Threads using the Internet Archive, but I couldn't find anything. However, I have saved at least one discussion thread in my files (#223), so I'll try to locate that and put it on here.Credits to halfhalfling for my adorable avatar.

Re: The Discussion Thread Index II
nice idea!
I was thinking that it might be worth it to have a table rather than a long list with the links (with rows of 10 strips or so)Knowledge, logic, reason, and common sense serve better than a dozen rule books.

Thanks for the idea, I'll look into that later (I'm a bit swamped with exam preparations at the moment). :)
Thanks, I'm glad you found it useful.
Also: I was going through some stuff on my computer and I found that I'd save the text of the Sprained Wrist Theatre thread. It needs to be cleaned up a bit to be readable, but I should have it done and ready to post along with my next update to this topic.Credits to halfhalfling for my adorable avatar.

Yeah, this just took longer because I said I would post the Sprained Wrist Theatre thread with this update and I've been putting off cleaning that up . But I got through it today, so:
Updated for #658, #659, #660, and #661.
Also updated for the Sprained Wrist Theatre (which, oddly enough, it does not appear I copied the entire thing. Oh well, first 64 posts of the thread is good enough.

The sad face is because the Giant got hurt. Anyway, discuss the guest comics here.
EDIT: In case future generations wonder what the Lawful Evil plane this is, I'll put the most recent news post:
(6/27/05) Latest news: I've decided to take the rest of the week off to let my hand heal. I just don't want to rush it, and the hundreds of "Get Well" emails I've gotten tell me you guys understand. Instead, I'll post a previouslyunposted fan comic or piece of fanart every day this week, and start fresh with next Monday's comic. If you ever wanted to do fanart for OOTS and see it posted for everyone to see, now's your chance. So sit back and enjoy a week of what I like to call (drumroll please)... Sprained Wrist Theater!

Neat. In true drawingV fashion, Panel #2 makes V look like a guy, while panel #5 makes him look far more girly.
I love beholders.
Thus, I will nitpick and point out that it is actually a Gauth (lesser beholder) and not a true Eye Tyrant.

Hey, it's certainly not an "Evilgasm"uality joke, but then, that can be said for most of OotS's installments, anyway. And it WAS worth a chuckle  finally, SOMEthing gets a good look at V "in the allnatural" ... and promptly proceeds to try gouging out all six of it's eyes.
Remember: not everything has to hit perfection, in order to be "good". ^_^ Let's just be glad that there're enough artisticlyinclined fans out there to give Rich (and his wrist) a muchneeded break, without COMPLETELY depriving us of our StickFix, Mmm'kay? :)

A long time ago, I used the avatars on this forum (the ones not used  at the time in the OOTS strip) to make a silly parody kind of strip about them complaining they were not in the OOTS strip. I yanked it down, shortly after, because of some confusion. I was just curious if the mods would be okay with me uploading them again (in this thread), and posting links to them for folks here to see and possibly giggle at while we wait for Rich to recover?

I knew something horribly traumatizing would happen once V said something about "swim".

Then I read the guest comic itself, and wondered wether he read it, and fel very justified.

Chalk it up to artistic license. Beholders have 11 eyes total [10 eyestalks plus central eye], gauths have 7 total, spectators 5 [1st ed monster version] and the creature in the strip has 6 eyes total [5 stalks plus central eye] A stupid display of geek pedigree on my part but there you go.

really cool interpretation of OOTS. man, i wish i could draw like that. wouldn't it be cool to see this artist's interpretation of the rest of the OOTS party?
one great thing about animestyle art is that you can never really tell if the character is a girly guy or simply a girl! maintains the anonymity of V's gender :)
in anime art, my friend once said that you can only tell a girl is a girl if she has eyelashes. (i see no eyelashes on V :P) but V does look pretty girly in about the 5th frame

For some reason, today's guest artist pretty much captured how I've seen Elan. Sure, he look muscular and everything, but he's really just all looks. The type of personality has always reminded me of those corny superhero types who mess up everything and always end up making the most inane of decisions whenever possible.

Critique of SWT #1:
Pretty good play on the running "sexually ambiguous" joke over Vaarsuvius. V is disturbingly attractive in this comic  disturbing because we aren't sure whether s/he should be attractive (to us as individuals). There's a fear of getting really turned on only to find the object of desire is a crossdresser. I think writing "Silent Scream" in the beholder's shock frame was unnecessary: the image captured the creature's reaction quite well.
Critique of SWT #3:
Yes, Elan is probably that dense, I just don't like the way he's drawn. I don't envision him as musclebound.
__________________

I didn't like the way Elan was drawn either, if he were stronger the Giant probably would have given him wider arms or something. And since Elan was never very good with the rapier ("Either that, or I don't think that you can affect this battle in any way") I doubt he has much strenght in the first place.

Regarding the skirt, I think it's just that maybe the fabric's "fold" is a little unnatural(I might have to take a towel around the waist later and see)
I think the most "accurate"(to me) depiction of Elan would be Christoph Erichsen's, although maybe a little less boyish and more mannish in the jawline.
Haley looks like she's been huffing steroids in the newest one. :/

There was a theory spotted in the other thread that the folds were due to Haley's foot being in the vicinity. (Foot, boot, something  theories abound)

well, I think my opinion matches the general comments: a little too much muscle on both Haley and Elan. but it is interesting to see a different interpretation of OOTS.

Yes, I agree with this, I think it is quite obvious that it is just the fold with her boot peeking out at the bottom of it. Sometimes I think everyone reads just a little to much into the drawings.

Escaflowne is a bad example, though: the dub I saw had a woman doing a voice for one of the male characters (who was not particularly feminine either).

Well, the Haley doesn't look too bad. I think it's just the drawing style lends itself to "topheavy" characters (I mean, those eyes are huge). But yeah, I always pictured Elan as having more of the Boy Band variety of good looks, as opposed to the whole Studly DoRight thing. But still, I think it's hilarious. I wonder how many submissions the Giant has to wade through. I'd consider submitting one, but I can't even draw a stick figure.

SWT#2, picture 3. That is the best representation of them IMHO.
V  Apart from those weird somatic components I like the way s/he looks.
Elan Boyish and NOT strong as an ox and does NOT have a chindimple(sp?).
Belkar Perfect! Has that 4yearold psychopath feeling to him.
Roy Depicted as a knight during the crusades. Check!
Durkon Great, 100% dwarven cleric.
Haley Best of them all...

You're thinking "cleft chin". That's when the chin looks like a pair of breasts, or someone's buttocks. *runs before the people with cleft chins start bludgeoning him to death with them.*

Wow! I was read! Truly, I was relieved when I realized that was Haley's boot, cause Isabel's depiction of Haley has otherwise been very happily seared into my brain. Yummy :)

He didn't believe in me before, I don't want him to believe in me now just because someone more popular than him does.

Nice initiative. It could be interesting to keep an index on this. I just went back and checked the threads on #400, #448 and #449, all among my favourite strips ever.
A nitpick, however: in the lists, you contracted the removed threads of #363#365, which kind of breaks with your form. I think it would be prettier to write those out instead, but it definitely works as it is too.Quoth the raven, "Polly wants a cracker."

Great, I'm always glad to hear that people are finding this useful.
The reason those are like that is because it wasn't three different threads. Apparently, during that time the forum was experiencing some problems and the thread was made sometime after #365 and was about all three comics. So it wasn't a contraction on my part, the original was one thread for the three comics.Last edited by Lira; 20090912 at 07:22 PM.
